YouTube restores Donald Trump’s channel

YouTube said Friday it would restore former President Donald Trump’s channel, more than two years after suspending it following the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol.

The move follows similar actions by Twitter and Facebook in recent months, though Trump has yet to resume posting on those platforms.

“We carefully assess the continued risk of violence in the real world, while balancing the likelihood that major national candidates will be heard equally by voters in the run-up to an election,” YouTube said in a statement on Friday.

A representative for Trump did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment. Axios first reported the restoration of the channel.
